  • Hi,

    There is no Dial-In conferencing in OCS 2007, this is a feature in OCS 2007 R2 only
    You need to dial-out to all participants individually and join them into the conference!

  • That is a pretty broad question, can you provide more details on your deployment?  Assuming R2 is the topic, then the basic requirements are a deployed and configured Mediation Server, connected to either a supported Media Gateway or directly to a supported IP-PBX.  A dedicated DID number would need to be configured on the Audio Conferencing settings in OCS and assigned to the Conferencing Attendant contact.  If the maximum 50 caller will all be originating from outside your office then you'll need at least 2 T1/E1 analog phone lines coming into your PBX to support those 50 potential voice channels.

  • Hi:

     

    Some other suggestions for you:

    Sure, OCS2007R2 introduces the new feature dial-in conferencing, which enables users to join an audio/video conference by dialing in using a telephone on the PSTN. So, if you want to deploy the feature, I think youd better firstly learn more about it. You can refer to below links:

    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd425367(office.13).aspx

     

    From those, you can get some useful information when you plan to deploy a server for call conference.

    Hope this helpful!

    Regards!
